Förslag till ny standard om intäktsredovisning


Published on

Sigvard Heurlin, PwC.

IASB och FASB arbetar sedan några år med att ersätta gällande standarder för intäktsredovisning, IAS 11 och IAS 18, med en ny generell standard för redovisning av intäkter avseende kontrakt med kunder. Ett förslag till standard (Exposure draft) kom ut i juni 2010 och standarden beräknas bli publicerad i kvartal 2, 2011. Huvudprincipen i förslaget är att intäkt ska redovisas när vara eller tjänst överförts till kunden och kunden fått kontroll över varan eller tjänsten. Ca 1.000 kommentarer har lämnats till förslaget, de flesta från företag och organisationer i USA. Under detta avsnitt i symposiet ges en överblick över innehållet i den nya standarden. Vidare summeras den diskussion som IASB och FASB har haft om de mest kontroversiella punkterna i förslaget och vilka väsentliga förändringar som sker i förhållande till gällande standarder. Exempel på punkter som tas upp:

Vilka intäkter omfattas och när ska intäkt redovisas för vara resp. tjänst?
Hur redovisas intäkt när ett kontrakt omfattar flera uppdrag eller tjänster?
Hur definieras det centrala begreppet 'fullgörandeförpliktelse' (Satisfaction of a performance obligation) ?
Hur redovisas kostnader för att erhålla ett kontrakt? Vad gäller för produktgarantier?
Vad innebär standarden för successiv vinstavräkning?

  2. 2. AgendaWhy have the IASB and the FASB taken on this project?What is the principal approach taken? And what has been achievedduring the last year?Where do the IASB and the FASB stand now in this project?What happens next?Revenue Recognition September 2011PwC Slide 2
  3. 3. Why need for a new standard?A critical project for both the IASB and the FASB - For the IASB: Existing standards on revenue recognition, IAS 11 and IAS 18, are based on two different principles - Insufficient guidance in some cases. E.g. multiple elements arrangements. Reliance on US GAAP for specific guidance - For the FASB: US GAAP has a wide range of very detailed industry specific requirements (about 200), but no single standard - A need for consistent principles for use across industries.Revenue Recognition September 2011PwC Slide 3
  4. 4. What is the principal approach taken?Employs an assets and liabilities approach - the cornerstone of the IASBand the FASB FrameworkCurrent revenue guidance in IFRS and US GAAP focuses on an´earnings process´However, difficulties often arise in determining when an entity earnsrevenue.The earnings process is therefore not referred to in the proposal.Revenue Recognition September 2011PwC Slide 4
  5. 5. Where do the IASB and the FASB stand in theproject? ED, Revenue from contracts with customers, published in June 2010 Nearly 1.000 comment letters received Redeliberations of the proposal in the ED started in January 2011 A new ED to be published in Q3 with a 120-day comment period, will probably be delayed until October Goal: to issue a final standard in 2012.The following slides present the revenue model that theBoards have developed after recent decisions.The decisions are tentative and subject to change.Revenue Recognition September 2011PwC Slide 5
  6. 6. Significant feedback on the 2010 EDOverall views:• Support for a converged revenue recognition model• However, a need for further clarification of the operations of the proposed principles: - the concept of control to service contracts and contracts for continuous transfer of control, - distinct goods or services for identifying separate performance obligations, - estimating the transaction price on a probability-weighted basis and including credit risk and time value of money calc., - cost-benefit considerations.• Re-expose for further public comments.Revenue Recognition September 2011PwC Slide 6
  7. 7. The scope Does not seem to imply any changes to the scope. Thus the proposed scope would refer to all contracts with customers, except:  Lease contracts,  Insurance contracts,  Certain contractual rights and obligations within the scope of other standards, including financial instruments.Revenue Recognition September 2011PwC Slide 7
  8. 8. The basic model is unchanged from the 2010 EDThus the application of the revenue recognition model includes thefollowing steps:1. Identify the contracts with the customer(s)2. Identify the separate performance obligations ( ´prestationsförpliktelser´)3. Determine the transaction price4. Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations5. Recognise revenue when a performance obligation is satisfied.Revenue Recognition September 2011PwC Slide 8

  15. 15. Example: Revenue allocationCase 1. A telecom coy sells a mobile phone and unlimited calls and textsto Cust. A. The phone is free if the customer signs up for a year; thenetwork service is CU40 pm.Case 2. The coy also sells the same phone to Cust. B for CU300, with thesame service provided for at CU15 pm.At present: Case 1. Probably no revenue on the phone and revenue ofCU40 pm. Case 2. Revenue on the phone CU300 and revenue of CU15pm. Thus revenue attributed to main deliverables.Under the proposal: Revenue would be recognised at similaramounts for each phone and service based on (estimated) selling prices,see Step 4 below. Thus revenue depicts transfer to customers and isallocated to all performance obligations, not just main deliverables.Revenue Recognition September 2011PwC Slide 15
